Life sciences, business and research leaders ask Prime Minister Trudeau for a new approach to the sector

In an advertising and social media campaign launched on April 13th, life sciences industry associations, researchers and top national and regional business organizations are asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government to work together to create a world-class life sciences sector that will enhance Canada’s resilience in the face of future health challenges and ultimately help ensure our health and economic security.

“We are asking for a constructive dialogue to create the positive environment needed so Canada can build on its already strong life sciences industry and be ready to respond to future health emergencies as we have had to do with COVID-19 over the past year,” said Dr. Jason Field, President and CEO of Life Sciences Ontario, which helped organize the new initiative.
